The Casio MTP-1302PD-2A2V Wristwatch with the Tiffany-ish light blue dial may send the hearts of Casio fans racing. While the unlikely collab between Omega and Swatch may make this clean, sleek Casio timepiece feel like a probable collab between Casio and Tiffany & Co., rest assured this isn’t and neither is this a Rolex collab though it does look a lot like the king of watches’ Datejust.
Notwithstanding that the US$69.95 watch isn’t a collab with expensive brands, it appears to be sold out pretty quickly when the product went live last month (January). Apparently, the Casio MTP-1302PD-2A2V is being traded at as much as twice its original list price in the secondhand market.
I suggest not caving into scalpers’ demand. I would suggest scouring the brick-and-mortar stores cos’ sold out online does not mean it is sold out in regular stores. I could be wrong but it’s definitely worth a shot. Unless you don’t mind shelling out US$86 to US$200 for it.
Anywho, the Casio MTP-1302PD-2A2V Wristwatch has a very classic and minimal look that rocks a pretty run-of-the-mill ion-plated stainless steel case and bezel and is paired with stainless steel band with a triple-fold clasp.
Key features include 5 bar water resistant (50 meters or 167 feet), mineral glass, 3 hands setup (hour, minute, second), quartz movement with up to 3 years of battery (non-rechargeable, obviously), and date display at the 3 o’clock mark.
As we have said, it appeared to be sold out and so, you can either pay handsome money for one in the open market or signed up to be notified, and (keep your fingers crossed) hope it will be back in stock. Or you could go for the green dial version (MTP1302D-3AV) which kind of resembles the good’ol Rolex Oyster Perpetual. TBH, this version deserves as much attention as the Tiffany light blue version.
